alexander attended, they were all invited, they would have joined not only nancy pelosi, harry reid but steven spielberg, tommy lee jones. as tip o'neill famously said about his political foe, ronald reagan, love the sinner. hate the sin. when president reagan would invite the speaker, tip o'neill over to the white house for drinks and raise a glass to one another. there's no shortage of parties planned around inauguration 2013. here is hoping it spills over to the next four years and both sides of the aisle make a move to be more social and more civil. and, hence, more productive. that's "hardball" for now. thanks for being with us. "the ed show" with ed schultz, starts right now. >>> good evening, americans. welcome "the ed show" from new york. republicans are raising the white flag. this is "the ed show." let's get to work. >> they will not collect a ransom in exchange for not crashing the american economy. >> the republican game of chicken is over. eric cantore proposes a three-month deal on the debt ceiling. some democrats are calling it a trap. i'll ask dnc chairwoman debbie w
the ball. tonight, my message to senator harry reid. plus the american people are getting ripped off by a congress that just isn't working. congressman rick nolan, there 30 years ago. he is back now and he can't believe the difference. he is wondering, are we getting paid for this? >>> is it really an admission of guilt if you don't show any remorse? >> it did not even feel wrong? >> no. it's scary. >> did you feel bad about it? >> no. even scarier. >> psychologist dr. jeffrey gardere on lance armstrong's bizarre performance last night. >> good to have you with us tonight, folks. thanks for watching. republicans surrendered today in one of his biggest fights. president obama warned republicans about taking the debt ceiling hostage. it looks like they heard the message. >> the financial well-being of the american people is not leverage to be used. the full faith and credit of the united states of america is not a bargaining chip. and they better choose quickly because time is rung short. >> republicans made their choice during a gop retreat in williamsburg, virginia. house majority le
, their leader, harry reid, had some kind things to say about the tactic. >> the filibuster serves as a check on power and preserves our limited government. right now the only check on president bush is the democrats' ability to voice their concern in this body, the senate. if the republicans roll back our rights in this chamber, there will be no check on power. the radical right wing will be free to pursue anything they want. >> now the shoe is on the other foot. i asked larry crane to discuss the double standard. 700,000 workers and many industries including media and telephone data services and health care. but that's just his day job. larry co hen is also a leader of the democracy initiative, a coalition as progressive and varied as the naacp, common cause, the sierra club, greenpeace, jobs with justice and the afl-cio. along with an affiliated campaign called fix the senate now, they are working hard to change the filibuster rules. take a look at their ad. >> as climate change threatens the world we leave to our children and good u.s. jobs move overseas, time in the senate has expired, a
to get through. >> i mean, this is harry reid's biggest nightmare having the senate go first on assault weapons ban. this is not something he wants to bring up. i don't think he's, you know, my guess is there are a number of moderate democrats who come from states that are pro-gun states and they, i mean, we know that the last time that washington passed an assault weapons ban, that hurt democrats on the ballot the next time. and this is not a battle everyone in the democratic leadership wants. >> let's bring us now to the local level. i want to bring scott back into this, because i know that you've also talked to our local mayors, oakland mayor gene quan and san francisco mayor ed lee. they're in washington, they're there for the u.s. conference of mayors. how much of this debate actually affects us at the local level? cities like oakland, where there were four homicides within six hours last friday? where the crime rate for serious crimes has climbed 23% in the last year alone? does it have that much of an impact at the local level? >> look, well, it does. i mean, these mayors met in
, or blocked up passing and spending. >> am i not correct in saying owe obama first delegated to harry reid and when mcconnell felt frustrated reid wasn't serious, he delegated to biten. obama -- biden. obama announced this was the way it was going to be. that's his assumption going in. he's not a negotiator. es a' lecturer -- he's a lecturer. >> he's not an lbj type that grabs lapels. >> i think he feels he has the answer. he thought about this. this is the way it s. he has a high iq. we all admit to that. he's gifted in many rays but he's -- many ways but he's got the answer. >> one of the thing, he's trying to-- >> how can you say if you don't conform to him, it doesn't work when you set the whole thing up saying the democrats -- excuse me. let me finish. that the democrats say he gives away too much. you've got this narrative now being advanced. the republicans are trying to shift blame to obama saying he doesn't socialize enough. he doesn't pay enough attention to their tender egos. that is total nonsense. >> not only is he an intro vert -- obama, president obama is an intro vert and t
? if so, you are probably over 30. plus, i'm sending a letter to senate majority leader harry reid on what washington can do for children. and nerdland is in washington. >>> good morning, i'm melissa harris-perry. this morning, we are live in washington, d.c. as preparations are under way for the second inauguration of president barack obama. and while the public ceremony and celebration will take place on monday, the official swearing in as mandated by the constitution will occur tomorrow morning. chief justice john roberts will swear in the president in a brief ceremony at the white house just before noon and msnbc will bring it to you live tomorrow. president obama will retake the oath with a 52% approval rating according to the latest nbc news/"wall street journal" poll. after the last inauguration, the economy is not if a freefall, and universal health care is not a political platform, and the united states is not bogged down in multiple international wars, and the girls have a dog. look, president obama is go gin to enter his new term with with a new ad jen da already under a bright
leader, harry reid has not come out and endorsed the president's proposals. tom, also not coming out, how is the president going to be able to get this legislation through congress if you can't seem to get some top-ranking democrats onboard. >> that's the biggest challenge. harry reid has said generally, he supportses the conversation about it, but his aides made it clear he's not taking the lead on this one and he expects to see other senators who have made issues of gun violence and the law enforcement their main calling card on capitol hill and that's patrick leahy and ann fine stine and chuck schumer from new york. we have 23, democrats running for re-election and most of them come from midwestern, western states. they have strong, rural communities and therefore are a lot more open to maintaining gun rights and so you will have a lot of these democrats who will be very nervous voting for any big changes and harry reid is one of them. the national rifle association stayed out of the reelection race and he owes it to them to perhaps temper the debate and not necessarily let all of this
in their reelection prospects if they want to go out and touch on gun control again. this is why even harry reid has not said he's going to embrace any of the measures that the president put forward and when you add to that the fact you have a republican house and no appetite to deal with this, this would be difficult to get through congress. >> i believe there's a racial element to the debate. >> how so? >> the president and left is not eager to discuss, and that is the fact the large proportion of gun violence is taking place in our inner cities and it's black on black violence, is what we're seeing, and if you are black, your chances of being involved in gun violence, either as a perpetrator or a victim are several times higher than they are if you are white and that's a discussion that this president is uniquely qualified to have and doesn't want to have and neither does the left who complains we want to have discussions about racism. >> paul: and one point, michael bloomberg, independently wealthy, planning and shown in the past election and maybe more so this time, to put tens of millions of
agenda. harry reid said about 10 of the 23 democrats may have a real problem with this gun control agenda. maybe the number's a little bit shorter than that. but you're talking about democrats in states likele north carolina, arkansas, alaska, colorado, who will have trouble supporting the president on a whole host of these issues. it's one thing for the president to demonize the republicans and he's doing that and he's taking on a much more confrontational approach. but what happens when moderate democrats where they have to rely on some republican leaning type voters balk at the president's proposals? that changes the politics very quickly for him. gwen: but i'm curious where americans are. one of the things that i saw in his proposal is that the center for disease control should not be banned by investigating gun violence. who knew that they were? >> i don't think anybody did. but it goes to the point of guns the legislative piece but we're also looking at the facthat this is a cultural issue. we're here in washington debating can they get this piece through? can they get that piece th
term extension, are putting the burden on the shoulders of harry reid to pass it. republicans are sick and tired of getting the full attention in american politics. republicans do not always want to be the story, so they want to make the story the senate. that won't be easy to do, harry reid is very adept at saying no thanks, ewant to do my project. but the republicans were humbled on the fiscal cliff, and they want the toss it to the senate. >> if i read a lot of the report correctly, it kind of seems like the republican leadership planned, of course, the speakers's planned to retreat the talk their members down, to talk them into a calmer position, from language, how you talk to women and minority voters and to the debt ceiling to some of the other broader political strategy things. you were there, is that kind of a fair read? >> yeah, you could kind of see them back away from some of the more extreme positions as the days went on. you heard -- paul ryan, yesterday, was explaining to reporters what he had been saying, first saying the three-month extension was on the table. they were
are the guys who have to lead. they have got to get nancy pelosi and harry reid to bring along democrats, and we've -- >> harry reid is tough on this. he's pretty pro gun. >> well, he's going to have to listen to his constituents. i think he will. i think you're going to find in all of these places, when i talk to people around the country, there's just enough is enough. you see people who have been big gun rights advocates all of a sudden saying, well, we can't keep doing this. >> mr. mayor, thank you. >> you're welcome. thank you for having me. >> coming up, manti te'o's, a twitter war for the record books and for the ridiculist. ♪ you know my heart burns for you... ♪ i'm up next, but now i'm singing the heartburn blues. hold on, prilosec isn't for fast relief. cue up alka-seltzer. it stops heartburn fast. ♪ oh what a relief it is! >>> time now for the ridiculist. tonight, we're adding the twitter war between donald trump and deadspin. this week, deadspin broke the story about the notre dame linebacker who had a fake girlfriend, and trump was apparently imp pressed. he tweeted th
a budget in three years. the reason why the democrats have control of the senate is that harry reid has said democratic senators in the witness protection program with ever -- whenever budget issues come up. twenty democrats are up for election in 2014. half of them should not be coming back of the continue to vote with obama on tax and spend crazy debt policies which is what they have been doing. i think it is very important for the american people to see what the senate has not done and to force them to act but that. gerri: you sure can't act -- argue with that. the senate has not passed a budget and 1,361 days. let me get a comment. it would stop pay to members of congress if they don't do some of these things, if they don't get a budget resolution. you in favor of that? >> i think it's a good idea for two reasons. senators have not been doing democratic leaders have not been doing their job for a long time. they should not get paid. if they're not willing to do it, the senate should vote them out of positions. also, it gives the attention of average americans who don't know if they
. >> reporter: this group won tickets through senate majority leader harry reid's lottery. >> i was ecstatic. so i couldn't believe it. >> reporter: not only are people from all over the country in to witness history with the presidential inauguration, we talked to people who drove 10 hours from canada to the nation's capital. >> it's a huge honor for us. >> reporter: these two toronto police officers are here with a drill team from michigan to take part in the inauguration parade. >> this is a world event. so for us to be able to come here and be part of it and we understand a lot about american history, it really makes it special for us. >> reporter: after years of planning organizers tell us the city is ready for the crush of visitors. >> ktvu will have live coverage of president obama's inauguration beginning sunday. ken pritchett and tori campbell will be in washington d.c. >>> house republicans said they will agree to a three-month extension to the nation's debt ceiling but would not agree to a long term increase until both chambers approve a budget. the president said this week he
the next debt ceiling be reached, annoy, remember the republicans -- and even harry reid suggested that they do this every six months, get a temporary extension and come back in six months. at one point the republicans were proposing three extensions, three votes before the next election. and the president, meeting with his own aides about this said that's it. i'm done. i'm not doing this. this is not how the constitution was meant -- was designed. our founding fathers did not envision a day when members of congress could hold the president hostage by not paying the bills they themselves had racked up. and as often happens in these situations, the cooler heads on his staff said, well, mr. president, we understand how you feel, but we may have to cut the -- no, i'm not going to do it. he was very firm because he believed it was not just affecting him but about preserving the status of the presidency for future presidents. and in the end one of the things he was most proud of in that deal was not giving in to that. but at the time, the debt ceiling story had not been fully told. at t
years -- 1361 days to be exact. this is not the result of washington gridlock. majority leader harry reid said it would be foolish for his party in the senate to produce a budget. we disagree. what more than $16 -- more than 16 trillion dollars in debt, we believe it is foolish not to have a budget. we will meet our obligation to pass a budget on time, moderate spending, pay bills and keep the government running. most importantly, there will be a plan to slowly, but surely walk our nation out of debt, deficit and declined. on your behalf, we will insist that the democrats to run the rest of washington do the same. this debate is often argued in numbers and figures, but it is really about families like yours that bear the burden of a slow economy, constant uncertainty, and ever-changing government rules that chase jobs and opportunity overseas. one day to day life costs more, and jobs pay less, we do not solve the problem by delaying decisions, raise taxes, or refusing to tackle the most pressing economic challenges. you deserve better. with the swearing in of a new congress and the i
pelosi, harry reid but steven spielberg, tommy lee jones. as tip o'neill famously said about his political foe, ronald reagan, love the sinner. hate the sin. when president reagan would invite the speaker, tip o'neill over to the white house for drinks and raise a glass to one another. there's no shortage of parties planned around inauguration
leader harry reid says if the house can pass a clean debt ceiling increase to avoid default and allow the white house to to meet its existing obligations we will be happy to consider it. they don't want the drama. >> debt ceiling in a manner that causes no concern to the economy and to global markets, that does not in any way suggest that washington is about to, you know, engage in another process that results in a self-inflicted wound to the economy. >> this afternoon, carney calls on congress to pass an extension of the borrowing limit without delay. bill? >> bill: get ready for another battle. thanks, mike. mike immanuel from washington tonight. top story as we go around the world tonight in 80 seconds. >> china, had happened after a cargo ship ran aground on some rocks and sprang a leak. the crew reportedly trapped for seven hours in stiff winds and wonderful waives. the helicopter team pulled all four people on board to safety in just 35 minutes. germany. we're getting our first look inside the elab bore brat tunnel thieves apparently used to pull off a bank robbery in berlin on
. but the white house says they're encouraged by what republicans are doing. you hear senate majority leader harry reid as well, saying that they're encouraged by this move. because, as you know, republicans were saying that they would not raise the debt ceiling on this. there were these equal spending cuts. and the president came out and said, i'm not going to negotiate on this. so this is, i guess you could say, taking some of the air out of that balloon. it won't be intense, at least over the next few months. >> what other issue do you think is going to dominate the early days of this second term? >> i think it has to be immigration reform. that's something that the president said he wanted to get done in his first term and it did not happen. there was a lot of, i don't know anger, but certainly people in the latino community were upset at the president, because they fully thought that he was going to push a lot of this through in his first term. he did not get it done. the president said, you know, this week that this was a big priority for him. and as you know, latinos supported him overwhelm
hostage. that's senate leader harry reid there. house minority leader nancy pelosi rejected the plan. did the republicans make a real effort here or was this a gimmick as nancy pelosi said? >> the most important thing for republicans is they are re-ordering the three fiscal conflicts that the country has ahead. the three conflicts are are the sequestration and the deep cuts to domestic and military spending and the end of the funding of the government that could result in a govern shutdown and the sent ceiling fight and the debt ceiling fight has potentially the worst consequences for the economy. so the republicans thought instead of taking the debt ceiling fight first and potentially doing real harm, let's move it to the end of the first of three standoffs. >> and sequestration, of course, also a major issue. do republicans think they can win on -- on major cuts to domestic and military spending? >> probably not. i don't think they have a lot of betting power here at all. the debt ceiling was the biggest bargaining chip that they had and they just moved it to basically a totally differe
to the problem. it's a way to try to make the senate and harry reid in particular look bad, which i'm sure feels pretty good for republicans on capitol hill burks doesn't get us any closer to solving our problem. >> rick: talk for the party and the minority. you alluded to this. but it's tough for the party that really does not control the government to lay down the law. so how much is your party going to actually be able to sort of steer the debate and get things done over the next couple of years? >> well, we are not asking for something unreasonable here. i mean, kristy referenced the senate. let's remember the senate has not passed a budget for the last three years. people in their households do a budget every month. >> let's remember -- >> we have not operated -- >> rick: hold on, kristy. >> we have not operated with a budget for the last three years. listen. how did get here? both parties have suffered from spending addiction over decades. both political parties have been guilty of it. the republicans have taken the first step in what do you as an addict and that's recognition. unfortunate
